September Share with Sandi

Hi ID peeps, Great to be back this month to share my latest art work. It's been a busy month but the call of my art room is as always too strong and this month I have done an extra piece of work in my journal. 


My journal is getting full and I've worked out I have just the right amount of the pages for a full year yay!! Wasn't planned I can guarantee you but works out really well.


My journal pages for Sept includes a intro page using my favourite colours and one showing my amazing eldest daughter. 





On this first page I used the chipboard backing card from the packing to highlight the title of my journal and used the love hearts which were covered with 13@rts Splash ink.

This time I used gold, blue and deep red acrylic paint  and gesso to cover the chipboard on this page. Adding the gold as a base, sponging the blue and then used my fingers to spread the white gesso over to soften the look.

This page is of my youngest daughter and one of her best friends back in their school days. Seemed so long ago, can't believe how grown up they are now. The chipboard flowers and title were coated in an old gold acrylic paint and the leaves 'Brushed sage' Distress ink using a sponge applicator.

Tags - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

It's Karyn here and today I'm sharing 4 tags I made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard.
I dont often make tags but I always admire what others create so I thought I would give it a go, and it was a great excuse to use some of the Prima Tag Pad I purchased many years ago and have never used!! 

The first 2 tags are more masculine. I started by selecting some chipboard and adhering it to the tag. I also added some magic mesh for dimension. I then applied some Art Anthology velvet dimensional medium (blue, brown, and purple) across my page using a palate knife. These paints are somewhat transparent - sort of like a tinted gel medium.
Then I added some Lindy's Magicals (blue, black, gold, brown and pink). To finish I added some stamps, beads applied with soft gloss gel, twine and a metal charm, black paint splatters and I used a Fude Ball pen to define the edges.Here is the finished tag. 
 
For the second tag I gesso'd over the chipboard after I had adhered it to the tag and I added some twine before painting (I also used a stencil). I used  Lindy's Magicals (blue, black, gold, brown and pink) to add colour. To finish I added some ribbon, black paint splatters and I used a Fude Ball pen to define the edges.Here is the finished tag and a closeup. 
 
The next 2 tags are more femenine. I started by selecting some lace and the chipboard, adhering it to the tag and applying gesso (the gesso stops too much paint and water being absorbed by the chipboard).
Then I added some Lindy's Magicals (pink, purple, yellow). To finish I added some stamps, beads applied with soft gloss gel, a metal charm, black and white paint splatters (from a paint pen), ribbon, and I used a Fude Ball pen to define the edges.Here is the finished tag and closeup.
 
For the last tag I've used Lindy's Magicals (blue, green, purple, yellow). To finish I added some stamps, rocks applied with soft gloss gel, black and white paint splatters, lace and I used a Fude Ball pen to define the edges.Here is the finished tag and closeup.
